Description
Your tour begins in the port and industrial city of Puerto Montt. This city is also known as the "northern door to Patagonia", because many trips through the south of Chile and to Patagonia start here. The first settlers came to Puerto Montt and neighboring areas from Germany more than 150 years ago. Here we'll visit the main square, the cathedral and the scenic lookout Manuel Montt, which has a panoramic view of Reloncavi Sound and the city.
Then we will go to Alerce Andino National Park - humid evergreen millennial forest. There we will walk for about 5 miles (8 kilometers). Alerce or Fitzroya is one of the unique species of evergreen trees growing only in this corner of the globe - in the northern Patagonia. Some specimens are dated as 4000 years old. Fitzroya is considered one of the largest trees in South America.
After visiting the park we will have lunch and return to Puerto Montt. Passengers may ride directly to the port or remain at the Angelmo Handicraft Fair. This market is famous for local handicrafts and fresh seafood, and is a five minute walk from the port.

* It's recommended to bring a small backpack, water, jacket, protective suncream, sunglasses, hat, shoes or trekking boots.
